George’s Rosemary Balsamic Salmon


2 salmon fillets
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 tsp anise seed
2 tbsp chopped rosemary
1 tsp paprika
Juice of 1 lemon
olive oil
½ cup white wine or water
salt and pepper to taste



Place salmon in a plate to marinate. Make slits in the salmon ½ way through the fillet. Pour balsamic vinegar and lemon juice and rub with anise seeds, rosemary, salt and pepper. Make sure ingredients go between the slits. Let the salmon marinate for 15 minutes.


Heat a heavy skillet and add olive oil. Place salmon with marinade in skillet and cook each side for 5 minutes. Lower heat to medium and keep covered. Add white wine or water as liquids reduce. You are actually steaming the fish. Remove when fish is cooked all the way through, but still tender. Fish should still be light pink in the center.
